Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

Amid the sound and fury of all the allegations of foreign influence peddling rocking the Democratic Party and the Clinton White House, one of Washington’s biggest foreign money players has eluded almost any mention in the mainstream media. That could be because the Reverend Sun Myung Moon and his Unification Church own one of Washington, DC’s most influential, and right-wing newspapers — The Washington Times.

Investigative journalist Robert Parry has just completed an exhaustive five part series on the Rev. Moon and his political money machine in the United States.

Guest:
• Bob Parry, a longtime investigative reporter based in Washington DC. He has previously worked for The Associated Press, Newsweek, and PBS’s Frontline and presently publishes I.F. Magazine and the web news magazine The Consortium
